No, this isn´t a new mod for CS:S: It´s because this game had his selling and commercialization forbidden in Brazil...

No, you aren´t reading wrong: not only Counter-Strike: Source, but also ALL, ALL CS series: 1.6, 1.5, etc...

"A Federal Judge in Brazil prohibited the sale of the video games Counter Strike and EverQuest. The measure affects the whole country but started to be applied in the State of Goias, where the judge Carlos Alberto Simoes dictated the prohibition saying that the games “provoked permanent stimuli toward the subversion of the public order, [and they] were an attack against the democratic state and the law, and against public security."

    If Counter-Strike is banned in Brazil, I can only imagine what they're gonna do about Modern Warfare 2 (no, not No Russian, I'm talking about the scenes in Rio de Janeiro. Although No Russian would only elevate their point).

    Didn't they blame Counter-Strike for Columbine?

    There is always the pirate bay (evil). They claim it teaches war techneques..... WHAT? How the hell it teaches anything at all? Why not ban evry FPS games then? They all do that. And EverQuest? It teaches bribes and murders? So what you are going to ban evry MMO too?

    A few years ago my friend bought Half-Life in Germany. When I got to play it whenever you kill someone they just kind of sit down and disappear, they don't die. And instead of gibbs flying everywhere they just stand there and disappear.
    Awesome

    If you have Half-Life 1 you can play everything from the early betas to 1.5 via mods.

    Don't the people who sit in these offices all day have something better to do then sit and complain about games all day....I think they just died to much on css and are taking it out on who ever could have PWNED them. But really shouldn't they be like I dunno umm stopping identity theft or stoping gangs?

    Politic Dude: "Waaaaaaahhh, I died, now you all suffer"

    Dude who is awsem and uses steam to download cs: "Umm lawl you suck at CSS"

    Politic Dude: "Oh you won't be saying that when I ban counter strike"

    CS Dude: "Oh yeah, you do that I will just dl it duhh :S"

    Politic Dude (These guys are almost like hitler but with videogames): "Omg you noob! I am so angry the only reason you are disagreeing is because you play CSS"

    My opinion: Of course! That is why we all argue all the time.....dumb politics
